Potential Medication Errors in Nursing Homes

Although medication errors have decreased in recent years due to advancements in technology, the problem continues to impact many nursing home residents. The leading cause of medicinal problems in elder care facilities is human error, such as forgetfulness, mixing up health charts, or failing to read prescription instructions.

Medication errors involve so much more than administering the wrong drug. In fact, this type of error only makes up five percent of the problem in nursing homes.

Common types of medication errors in long-term care facilities include:

  • Drug omissions
  • Overdoses
  • Underdoses
  • Wrong strength
  • Expired drugs
  • Documentation errors
  • Wrong timing
  • Incorrect patient
  • Improper monitoring
  • Lab work mistakes
  • Mixed medications
